How to Draw a Great Looking Grandpa for Kids and Beginners - Step 1

Grandpa step-by-step drawing tutorial: step 1

1. Begin the grandpa outline by drawing the nose. Use overlapping curved lines for the bridge and tip of the nose. Then, draw the eye. First, place a curved line at the top of the cheek.

Use curved lines to enclose the rectangular eye above it, and the eyelid above the eye. Inside the eye, enclose a circle within a circle and shade between them to form the pupil.

Then, use a series of short, connected curved lines to enclose the bushy mustache and one of the eyebrows.

Draw a "V" shaped line beneath the head, and connect it with short lines, enclosing the neck. Use two more "V" shaped lines to draw the shirt collars on each side of the neck.
